I stretched it a touch by using the heart doily in place of the dark gray panel, but it was sitting right next to me in my 5 year old's supply box and it seemed appropriate for a Valentine's card. So I shamelessly swiped it. I combined this card with the ribbon reel challenge challenge # 19, pink polka dot's. We were to use the inspiration photo, along with polka dots, pink, and ribbon/twine.
I used some paper that I had yet to crack open, and I love the pink pom pom ribbon. It wasn't until after I made my card and reviewed the inspiration photo that I noticed the owl. I paper pieced mine - mostly because I don't like to color, I was always envious of those kids in grade school who could color so beautifully. I also thought it would add a touch of whimsy to the card.
